    I wonder if they have insurance policies? I'm not an EVE player but this is certainly a gripping story of war with consequences for the players.

    "Game currency is bought with real money" - This is totally NOT true! There is a semi official exchange rate of $ or £ into ISK based on the fact that CCP allow you to pay for gate time with in-game money. The Idea here is that if I am £ rich and you are ISK rich but poor in £ you can pay me in-game to pay for your subscription.

    This leads to there being a £ value calculation being possible.

    Some argue that this is just the same as CCP selling ISK but you need to remember that someone needed to earn the ISK in game to pay you for the game time you purchased with ££

    Game currency can be bought with real money.

    Sounds like an epic engagement, and one i;m sad I missed. On a side note, this is also about the number of failed launches I've had on kerbal space program...

    Sounds impressive! In a different life before career, mortgage and partner I could see myself dumping vast amounts of time into that game!

    Re: News - Over 2,600 spaceships destroyed in huge Eve Online space battle

    lost 5 ish yrs to eve .. still have an account bout 14 bill isk but when the corps and alliance start telling you when to be on it loses it's appeal.
    how many lives has this game ruined .. I know a few that went thru a divorce because of it ..
    sad how things change
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

    I totally disagree with this!

    Using £'s I purchase a plex (GTC) I redeem this item in game and pop on the market. This is real money to ingame money conversion.

    Using your idea, if you where £ rich you would pay for your account using money. If someone is £ poor, but ISK rich, then they can purchase a plex from the market place to continue their subscription.
